I WAS THINKING…
that my most valuable books were written by Dale Carnegie and
Richard Carlson’s book “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff”. They are so positive and up-lifting. They’ve been on the shelf for more years than I can remember, but I know they are there when I need a word of encouragement.
When I see the young generation with their phone or i-pad in their face, I think maybe they’re reading one of their books. Well, at least it’s a good thought.
WRITINGS FROM DALE CARNEGIE
*When we hate our enemies, we are giving then power over us: power over sleep, appetites, blood pressure, health and happiness. Our enemies would love to know how they are getting even with us. Our hate is not hurting them, but turns our days and nights into a hellish turmoil.
*This day is too precious to be corroded by acid worries and regrets. Keep your chin high and your thoughts sparkling. Seize the day. It will never come again.
*To conquer fear, don’t think about yourself, but help others. Fear will vanish.
IN OTHER WORDS
Tears are words the heart can’t say.
Music is what feelings sound like.
My brains is giving me the silent treatment.
I’m young at heart, but old everywhere else.
I don’t mind getting older, but my body is taking it badly.
Winkles should be called wise cracks.
CRACK NUTS IN MICROWAVE
(Taken from Easy Does It – Not tested by Theresa)
Put hard nuts, like walnuts, Brazil nuts and pecans, covered in a bowl of water in microwave. Heat on high until water boils. Let the bowl stand in the microwave until cool, then drain. You should now be able to open the shells easily. Crack over a bowl to catch any excess water.
A yawn is a silent way of saying “Please go home.”
Just tell someone whose face would stop a clock that they makes time stand still.
